Last week I wrote a 4000-word essay about The Fifth Element which celebrated its 20th anniversary on May 9th. The Fifth Element is one of those films I can talk at length about and despite my rather long rant I barely touched on the film’s soundtrack which is often described as “intrinsically musical”. It’s one of the most unique soundtracks for a blockbuster film and one of my personal favourite soundtracks of the 90’s – and now thanks to Mondo, French composer Éric Serra’s work has been remastered and is available on 180-gram colored vinyl double LP with album artwork by Shan Jiang.
There is two version of the album getting a release. The first is the standard 180 gram white with orange striped vinyl. The second is the special “Super Green” vinyl, inspired by Ruby Rhod’s signature catchphrase, which will be limited to just 500 copies. Both versions will cost $35 USD.
